About X-Perl UnitFrames

Bug Reporting

Please use the Ticketing System on WoWAce Here and avoid posting bugs using comments on Curse because they're difficult to track and they will probably get lost.

Use a good error catcher (like BugSack from files.wowace.com) and provide the full error text, and give as much information as possible to recreate the problem. Don't assume We know what you're talking about with some three word report.

Introduction

Perl, with Extra stuff. Much enchanced from Nymbia's Perl UnitFrames, and a complete replacement for Blizzard's default unit frames, including raid frames and raid tools, with little remaining of the original Nymbia code.

  • Range Finder (combined with optional health check and/or debuff check) for all frames based on spell or item range test.
  • HoT Monitor will highlight units clearly that have ''your own'' active Heal over Time spells. Regardless of how many other heal over time buffs are on the raid members, you can keep track of your own ones and when they expire.
  • Debuff Highlighting in standard debuff colours on all friendly frames. Priority given to show debuffs that ''you'' can cure first.
  • Raid Frames, buff icons, MT list units and some other portions or X-Perl are Created on demand. Saving a lot of time and memory at system startup. Defering the creation of many parts of X-Perl to when they are actually required. And of course, most often outside of raids they are never required and are never created.
  • Raid Target icon support for Target, Target's Target, MT Targets.
  • Raid Tooltip will show combat rezzers available (druids with Rebirth ready (or very soon available) and any normal rezzers out of combat) if you bring up tooltip of a dead person.
  • In-combat indicators for all units.
  • 3D Portraits for player, pet, target, focus, party. Optional. Of course this may degrade your framerate somewhat because you are displaying more 3D character models that without this option. But some like it pretty, and it does look cool.
  • Red and Green combat flashes for frames when player, pet, target, party, partypets, raid take damage/heals. Useful indication of things happening.
  • Added '''time left''' on party member/target buffs/debuffs when in a raid, these depend somewhat on CTRA sending appropriate information over the addon channel, although some of it can be determined at run time by X-Perl, when a player gets a buff for example, we know how long it should last, and therefor when it should expire.
  • Totally new options window including all X-Perl options and access via minimap icon and the /xperl splash command.
  • Configurable colours for borders and backgrounds. Including class coloured names, and configurable reaction colours.

Much care has been taken with code size, memory load, memory usage per cycle and so on. LuaProfiler/OnEvent mods used extensively and regularly to ensure that X-Perl does not do more work than is absolutely necessary.

Assists View

Will show anyone from raid assising you with your target, and can also show healers or all plus known enemies targetting you.

Tooltips for the same also available (on player and target frames) if you prefer to not use the main window.

MT Targets

Replaces CTRA MT Targets window, and doubles as a replacement for the Perl RaidFrames warrior targets.

Indicator shows which target you are on.

Frames will be coloured to show if tanks have duplicate targets.

Casting Monitor

(WORK IN PROGRESS)

Shows selected classes (defaults to healer classes) in a list (much like the MT List), but with some differences.

Shows mana bars and cast bars on left. Their targets on right. Health bar as normal, but a secondary small red bar on targets which shows the maximum single hit this unit has received since entering combat. The secondary bar will extend downwards from their current HP level down to as far as zero.

A green name on the targets indicates this is the same target that you have. You can click on casters or their targets as expected.

For druids, right clicking on a caster will cast Innervate on them.

For shamans, right clicking on a caster will cast Mana Tide Totem. Check the * indicator to see if they're in your group.

All bars can be re-sized in X-Perl main options (Monitor section).

Totals can be toggled (from the 'T' minibutton at top of frame) which gives overview of raid mana status.

Raid Admin

(WORK IN PROGRESS)

Save/Load raid roster setups Only does direct save and load for the moment, but more to come (templates and such).

Item Check

Replacement for /raitem /radur /raresist /rareg. Use the old commands before, or drop items in the left item list.

Query button will perform /raitem on all ticked items (query always includes dur and resists) and you can then view and review all the results whenever, without having to re-query each item.

Includes everyone in raid, so you don't have to work out who doesn't have items, it'll list them with 0 instead of no entry.

Active Scanner to check raid member's equipment for the item selected. So you can be sure that people actually have the item worn (Onyxia Cloak for example), without having to go round single target inspecting everyone who 'forgot' to install CTRA for the 50th raid in a row.

Grim Reaper

Removed from X-Perl, but continues as it's own standalone Ace mod.

More Buffing Features

Can be found in my new universal buffing mod, ZOMGBuffs

[http://www.wowace.com/projects/zomgbuffs/]

3.7.5 Release (r860/r859)
1.You can now disable pvp marks on the frames.
2.TTT Frame, FocusTarget and PetTarget Debuffs are now enabled and disabled correctly.
3.You can now enable Target's Target Debuffs independently from its Buffs.

  • #7046

    I'm having the exact same issue on my dk ... some solutions up until now?

  • #7052

    I have a similar situation with my DK, I can temporarily correct it logging onto another character, deleting the profile for the DK, logging back into the DK and loading a saved profile.

     

    Edit Update: Disabling the modules Raid Admin, Raid Helper, and Raid Pets seems to also correct the issue.

    X-perl raid number bug.        Join a raid with like 3 groups full and having raid group titles turned on.   Leave raid, group numbers persist on the screen until you uncheck it in xperl options.

  • #7043

    Updated this Am, Eclipse bar for Druids is MIA :(  Was working last night.

     

    Thanks for your hard work

     

     

    Update:

    After my 3rd shift into Boomkin, the bar appeared but both Eclipse states were highlighted.  After 2 more shifts into Boomkin it appears to now be working correctly.

     

     

    Update to the Update:

    LOL.  Raided for a couple hours as Resto.  Went back to balance and cant get the ecplise bar to work after numerous shifts.  Hope this all helps

    when we get magic debuffs etc, the player frame no longer lights up like it used to. is it gonna get fixed or not? if not i think i will have to find a new addon for Healing.

  • #7038

    Hello!

    I Wonder why cant i disable party frames in raid? Cause i hate having both up when im in a 25 man raid. thanks

  • #7037

    Thank you so much to the team of authors for your hard work! This is one of my favorite addons, inho the best looking and easiest to use of the unit frame addons. Patch time is never fun for any author due to the people who insist on complaining that a free addon built by a player (who likely has a day job) doesn't work properly. Kudos and again, thank you!

    I updated x-perl from 3.5.5 to 3.5.10 and now the deathknight's player frame (only DK) is looking like this:

    http://img6.imagebanana.com/img/vcg7dg9x/xp.png

    Character name was hidden bei Paint power, but all the grey colours are original in-game.

    /Edit: Additionally, it causes many lags when loosing or gaining health/runic power, which is mostly in combat only. FPS goes to around 5-10 and its laggy until leaving combat.

    My Deathknight's player frame looks the same, too. Seems like a DK issue.

  • #7040

    Please provide the lua errors encountered.

     

    Install buggrabber and bugsack if you dont have something else installed.
